Proposed missions section
Could someone clarify the purpose of the "Proposed missions" section? The distinction between NASA proposing a mission and otherwise participating is hazy here, leading to the likely possibility that the "Proposed" section is subject to vandalism. Without correction I will resort the missions contained therein. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 03:39, 11 April 2011 (UTC)
- I changed that space to "Planned missions" and resorted the content appropriately. Further clarification of the section title could be had by changing it again to "Future missions" if needed. As it was, long ended NASA-led missions were the majority of those listed under the "Proposed" title. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 23:06, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

I propose we rename this article Outline of NASA missions. It has been more than a simple listing of mission names for a while, and should continue to evolve in that manner. A simple distinction, but appropriate. Without objection, I will move this article in about a month. JimsMaher (talk) 16:32, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
Dawn ... interplanetary?
Currently Dawn is listed as an interplanetary mission. Call me old fashioned but I think it would be better under the "Asteroid mission" list. What do you reckon?Ordinary Person (talk) 10:21, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
- Depending on how you define "planet", either section could be appropriate. Case-in-point: Ceres is a dwarf planet in the asteroid belt ... however, here are some external links that call the mission "interplanetary":
- With that in mind, just provide justification (preferably with a citation) if you decide to move it. JimsMaher (talk) 05:55, 16 May 2012 (UTC)
